Mbappe, Dembele, Rashford, Gabriel Jesus – The Future of World Football
The FIFA World Footballer award has come and gone and for the most interesting part of it is the Golden Boy award that sees new PSG boy Mbappe swoop the prestigious award has got a lot of people thinking about the next generation stars. Mbappe was a subject of a record transfer to PSG from bitter rival Monaco. Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the world of football for more than ten years, and it doesn’t look like they are tired. Rashford and Mbappe look the most promising among the nominated players for the Golden Boy Award. Dembele was a very important player for Dortmund last season, since his move to Barcelona, his season has been plagued with injury. He is currently on the sideline and may not feature for the club till January.
The Manchester United golden boy has been a revelation since his introduction in 2015, the college boy has gone from being a youth player to a dispensable member of the team. He has won matches for United and he also create goals. Under Mourinho, he has been deployed more as a winger rather than a proper striker. Nonetheless, he still gets his jobs done. Rashford has also established himself as a regular starter in the England national team.
